    Gary, that is just beautiful work, and it looks like it's still pretty much like new. Thank you for posting the original project, and the updates. I have admired your work since first finding this thread several years ago. Awesome!

    Here are some pics of the trailer. It's been over ten years later and she's still doing her job. Admittedly, I don't have a tremendous number of hours on the welder, but I've built A LOT of fence bracing, and hung too many gates to count. I still get emails requesting the design plans. I've had a couple of guys send me pictures of their finished rigs and they looked pretty good. One guy even drove out to meet me and show off his trailer.

    Happy welding,
    Gary

    9 years later I guess it's time for an update but there's not much to say other than I was out yesterday with it welding fence bracing. The welding trailer pretty much looks the same as it did in 2006. I do keep it inside the shop so it gets a little dusty but that's about it. Since 2006, I moved to the family ranch and built a house, shop and numerous fencing brace and a cattle corral with 3000 feet of pipe. The only changes I've had to make are the lid supports. The original ones gave out and I put new ones on.

    When I built my house, I put in a 240v/50A inlet so I could use the generator function in case of power outages. I've used that only once or twice but it works very well. I can run just about anything and everything in the house except for the big AC unit.

    I've gotten numerous emails from folks wanting the design plans. I've probably emailed out a couple dozen or so. So far, only one guy has sent me pictures back of the completed unit. His layout was almost exactly the same but with a few mods.

    Thanks for all the kind comments. I'll post some updated pics soon.

    PS, if you want me to email you plans, send me an email directly: [email protected] (yopu need to take out the 777 - it's there to fool the automated email trolls).

    First time I've seen this thread. Like everyone has already said, Nice job on the trailer. Since you mentioned in the thread that linked to this one, that you are still using it as is, could you put up a few pics of what it looks like now? Whatever little battle damage and all it has encountered since it has been in use.

    I really like it man... but I gotta tell ya... you made the same mistake I did. You put your oxy acy bottles on it. Its a 500 dollar fine in MD. And de. And they can also shut you down right on the spot. I dunno the laws where your at but I would imagine their the same....?

    To get by at all, even on a truck your straps have to be DOT approved. Or at least look like the ones that are DOT approved. I would bet that if a DOT man passed you goin down the highway he would stop you. It happened to me just cause I had em on the trailer. I made my own straps and he didn't even notice that

    Another request for plans

    I receintly signed up to receive the news letters, and found your article and pictures in one of the back issues. You do nice work.

    Some time ago, I mentioned to my wife that I would like to have an engine driven welder so that I could help out a couple of land-owners that have been kind enough to allow me to hunt on their property for a number of years.

    I must be doing something right, because about a week ago, Santa Claus brought me a brand shiny new Trailblazer 302.

    If you are not sick of requests for plans, please add me to the list of those who would like to copy your design. "Immitation is the most sincere form of flattery."

    Thank you,

    Doug Rude
